Lake Inferior

This is our older and bigger pond, which we dubbed "Lake Inferior" when we moved in. It covers a little less than three acres. It's very shallow and covered with water lilies in the summer, but it's great habitat for wildlife, including deer, great blue heron, muskrat, mallards, Canada geese, turtles and numerous frogs.

Our other pond, "Lake Eerie" is featured here.

Suggestions are welcome - just send me an email.

Leaves and Water

Full summer, and Lake Inferior is dense with water lilies, but a smooth patch of water remains to reflect the willow trunks. It was amazing to watch the heron fold up to perch in the tree.

"Spring Reflections"

Spring Reflections

April, and Lake Inferior has finally thawed. These leftover weeds and the reflection of the Springtime sky make for a pretty composition. This is the April picture in our Backyard Broome calendar.
